Weeks after the tragic death of Kobe Bryant, his friend and fellow basketball star, Dwayne Wade, shared how broken-hearted he is up until now because of the legend’s death.
Kobe Bryant was one of Wade’s closest friends and co-players who unfortunately died during a helicopter crash on his way to his daughter’s training. Kobe together with his 13-year-old daughter and seven other people passed away on the said tragic event.
Last Saturday night during the Stance Spades Tournament at the 2020 NBA All-Star, Wade shared his friendship with the late basketball legend. His colleague’s death seems so unreal for Wade. However, amidst the sadness, Wade pledged to continue his friend’s legacy. He wants to continue living life and leading the next generation on behalf of Kobe. He considers it as a job and a second act to go on and lead as it was to Kobe.
He also admitted that he already misses his friend just like everyone else. He noted how incredible Kobe’s legacy is and how good his memories are that made people keep talking about him. He had so many memories with Kobe on and off-court but his L.A. transfer was the most remarkable one. He shared how Kobe reached out to him asking when they could meet and when Kobe could watch him play. He added that it is what he loves about Kobe, his support and the fact that they were a family.
He further noted that he failed to set a date with Kobe rather he was looking forward until the playoffs. Due to this, Wade realized how important it is not to wait. Wade didn’t set the date considering that Kobe is very busy. He was waiting until the play-offs to meet Kobe but unfortunately, it didn’t happen.- Advertisement -
